Jawonio’s New Website Expands Reach, Access to Disability Services

Liqui-Site Designs launches site for provider of lifespan services for people with developmental disabilities, mental illness and chronic medical conditions

(Nyack, NY) November 9, 2012 – Liqui-Site Designs, Inc. announced today the launch of a new website at www.jawonio.org for Jawonio, the premiere provider of services for developmental disabilities, mental illness and chronic medical conditions in New York State’s Lower Hudson Valley and Northern New Jersey.

In 1947 Jawonio was founded with a focus on supporting children with cerebral palsy. Today, Jawonio’s professional and dedicated staff of 1000 provides services to more than 5,000 children, teens and adults annually. Jawonio is the 9th largest employer in Rockland County, New York.

Jawonio supports individuals and their families in the core areas of early childhood special education, employment, mental health services, residential services, service coordination and Jawonio businesses including a commercial cleaning company. The scope of the agency’s work extends to all ages and conditions, with an eye towards holistic family support and community involvement. To this point, Jawonio is known for its highly dedicated and professional staff, it’s large volunteer base and ongoing events that support the organization’s work and bring awareness to its cause. This past year, Jawonio was awarded the 2012 Rockland Business Association Pinnacle Award for Non-Profit of the Year Award as well as the Agency of the Year 2012, from NAMI-FAMILYA (National Association of Mental Illness in Rockland).

When the agency needed a new website to advance its mission, it turned to Liqui-Site Designs, Inc. for a second time, as Liqui-Site developed the Jawonio New Jersey website in 2009. For Jawonio, Inc., Liqui-Site was responsible for the custom design and development of a new website that showcases the organization’s many facets, and serves as a resource to all of its stakeholders – individuals, families, community members, affiliates, and local business leaders. Built on WordPress CMS, it organizes information and resources in a user-friendly manner. The new layout and information architecture help position Jawonio not only as the premiere provider of lifespan services, but as an online knowledge center for resources and advocacy for developmental disabilities and special needs. Liqui-Site integrated video and social media for a more engaging experience. Visitors are now called to action at first glance to sign up for the email newsletter, join and share via social media channels, view upcoming events, donate on a one-time or recurring basis, volunteer, and even support Jawonio with web banner sponsorships. “Our new website is exactly what we had imagined; a warm, welcoming place where individuals and families can find answers quickly, while at the same time, experience the culture of caring that makes Jawonio special,” said Jill Warner, Executive Director, Jawonio, Inc. “Thanks to Liqui-Site Designs, Jawonio will now find exciting new social vehicles with which to engage – and for families to share experiences in their own networks. Liqui-Site has created a central space for Jawonio where people can come, find support and build community together. We are delighted with the results.”
